For everybody that’s “caught in a hustle,” here’s your scheduled dose of rhyme by prescription to inject some realness into your week. Remember that before you can change anyone else, you have to change yourself first. If you want people to change how people respond to you, then you have to change the way you respond to people first. Lead by example and let the rest take care of itself! (Lyric from “Caught in a Hustle” by Immortal Technique) #rhymes #medicine #remix

Let your pen be your only weaponry, murdering beats your only felony, and let your rhymes settle scores just like a referee. Use your power to pause before reacting and you’ll see just how much control over your own neurochemistry you actually have. #mondaymotivation

In case you’ve missed the weekly doses of Rhyme in your Facebook life given our unintentional hiatus, we’re getting back on track! We still haven’t quit if you were wondering and the meaning behind this prescriptive rhyme is part of the reason why. The interesting thing that Winners and Losers both have in common is that they both experience losing, but it's what they do after they lose that makes them one or the other. Winners don't quit until they win (or die trying). Losers accept the loss and don't have the courage to get back up after falling down. It’s not how many times you fall down that counts, but it’s how many times you get back up and won’t back down to try again that does. Winners Never Quit & Quiters Never Win. Which one are you? 💊🤔🎤 #InjuryDuty #MedicineReMixed #GettingBackUp

Russell Tyrone Jones aka "Ol' Dirty Bastard," the talented, substance-abusing, mentally unstable Wu-Tang Clan legend died 13 years ago today from a lethal combo of cocaine and Tramadol (a depressant opioid pain medication) that affected the proper functioning of his heart. Dirty would have been 49 this Wednesday, November 15th. He reportedly collapsed on November 13, 2004 (just 2 days before his 36th birthday) at RZA's recording studio (36 Chambers Records on West 34th Street in New York City). Leading up to his death by overdose, ODB’s increasing legal troubles and eccentric behavior was likely the result of serious drug abuse and a legitimate undiagnosed mental health disorder. After spending 3 months in the Manhattan Psychiatric Center in 2003 for an acute psychotic episode, ODB was reportedly diagnosed with schizophrenia— a psychiatric disorder characterized by abnormal social behavior and perceptual disturbances. It’s strongly linked to genetics, however, certain environmental factors like marijuana use during teenage years has been found to be a risk factor. Schizophrenia tends to be diagnosed 1.4 times more often in men than in women and typically presents earlier in men (early teens to early 20s in men, late 20s to early 30s in women). Approximately half of the schizophrenia patient population attempts suicide. Atypical Antipsychotic medications (i.e. Olanzapine, Ziprasidone, Quetiapine) are typically the first-line treatments for Schizophrenia. If symptoms fail to improve after 2-6 weeks, medications like Clozapine may be used as a last-line of defense. It’s uncertain what medications ODB was prescribed after his hospitalization and how compliant he was in taking them. Often regarded as a "Hip Hop folk hero,” ODB was a tortured yet talented soul whose erratic speech patterns and at times delusional braggadocio was regarded as part of the colorful persona of a rap artist rather than the tragically undiagnosed symptoms of a patient struggling with his grip on reality. When ODB’s mother Cherry was asked why she didn’t cry at her son's funeral in an interview, she said: “How was I supposed to cry when I saw him for the first time in his life at peace.” (Artwork by Artist Jason Koza) #RIP #ODB #WuTangClan

According to a study published Today in JAMA-JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION, Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) was found in 99% (110/111 brains) of deceased NFL players' brains that were donated to scientific research.

Here's a video mashup we did a while back to remix a conversation from our podcast "Medicine ReMixed" about the tragic yet powerful suicide of Hall of Fame linebacker Junior Seau, who was found to have CTE on autopsy.

Between the NFL Draft and Mayweather-Pacquiao, this weekend was a celebration of modern-day gladiators. In the aftermath, we examine the death anniversary of football legend Junior Seau in this ID reconstruction mix.

This might be the most important "Medicine ReMixed" Anchor and podcast episode we've done so far. We talk about the life and death of Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington, which led to a much broader discussion about how suicide is still among the top causes of death in the United States.

Fear is a powerful manipulation tactic that’s commonly used by those directly (and indirectly) involved in our development from a young age— our teachers, our parents, and our "regularly scheduled programming." It's no wonder fear sells better than sex, but no one talks about it because it's not as sexy. 😉

Prodigy, Pac, & Pain

Prodigy, one half of the legendary hip-hop duo Mobb Deep from Queensbridge died today. He was 42. Although details are unknown, P was reportedly hospitalized shortly after a performance in Vegas this past weekend due to complications from a horrible genetic disease he’s battled since birth known as Sickle Cell Anemia. Coincidentally, legendary deceased rapper 2pac Shakur who was trending recently with the release of “All Eyez on Me" (opened on June 16, 2017, Pac’s would-be 46th birthday) also died in Las Vegas. One of 2pac's not so proud moments was when he called out Prodigy in the most savage way for during the height of the infamous East Coast/West Coast Beef, leading to one of the rawest diss tracks ever made, "Hit em Up." That song largely targeted The Notorious B.I.G., but Pac also took figurative shots at other East Coast gangsta rappers at the time like Mobb Deep. Tupac infamously went too far when he called out Prodigy for having Sickle Cell Anemia. Talk about cold-blooded. Prodigy would later go on to make a brutally honest response track called “You Can Never Feel My Pain,” a poetic chronicle of P's physically painful life with Sickle Cell Anemia, on his first solo album way back in 2000. Look out for our full "Audiotopsy" report of that track filled with medical references only on our Anchor radio station "Medicine Remixed" this week.

Isaiah Acosta is a 17 year old rapper who was born with Situs Inversus, which is a rare condition in which organs are flipped as mirror images in the body. In Isaiah's case, he was also born without a jaw. This is a short film documenting his journey to share his story through an artform that doesn't discriminate. This is deeper than Rap.
